BTS’s J-Hope surprised fans with a late-night livestream on July 25, and ARMY loved watching him show off his dance moves during his live broadcast. During the livestream, J-Hope danced along to lots of great songs, which proved he has excellent taste in music.
Here are 5 songs from J-Hope’s playlist that you should add to yours!
1. “As Long As You Love Me” by Backstreet Boys
J-Hope warmed up to this Backstreet Boys song from 1997.
“As Long As You Love Me” was the boy band’s second single from their debut album and is one of their biggest hits. Some critics said this song could have been a hit in any era, so it’s no wonder J-Hope loves it!
2. “I Got 5 On It” by Luniz featuring Michael Marshall
Clearly, J-Hope was feeling the ’90s vibes during his livestream! Shortly after listening to the Backstreet Boys, he put on Luniz and Michael Marshall‘s 1995 hit “I Got 5 On It.”
This song was the lead single from rap duo Luniz’s debut album. “I Got 5 On It” sold one million copies in 1995 and was certified platinum! As this song played, J-Hope showed off his signature sunny smile and fancy footwork.
3. “Fu-Gee-La” by Fugees
J-Hope continued dancing as the Fugees‘ “Fu-Gee-La” played over the practice room’s speakers. Since he was fully warmed up by this point, his moves were even bolder and sharper than before!
“Fu-Gee-La” was the lead single from Fugees’ final album, The Score, which was released in 1995. The song reached #1 on the Billboard Dance chart, so it was the perfect choice for J-Hope’s dance practice!
4. “Flava in Ya Ear Remix” by Craig Mack featuring Notorious B.I.G., L.L. Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and Rampage
Yet another ’90s hit on J-Hope’s playlist! As this song played, J-Hope showed off his popping, locking, and isolations.
“Flava in Ya Ear Remix” was released in 1994 and features some of the biggest names in hip hop at the time. The original “Flava in Ya Ear” was Craig Mack‘s debut single, and he teamed up with Notorious B.I.G., L.L. Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and Rampage for the remix.
5. “Moonwake” by tysu and Spencer Hunt
This lofi song played as J-Hope wrapped up his practice.
“Moonwake” was released in 2020, and it’s a favorite of fans of the lofi genre. J-Hope didn’t dance to this song, but it did play shortly before he hilariously took ARMYs with him to the bathroom!
